Roubo Bench - The beginning

03-11-2009 03:50 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

I decided that I needed/wanted a new workbench and after some research, including Chris Schwartz’s book, I settled on the Roubo style. I gave a lot of thought to my work style and needs, and here are my excuses for needing a new bench (just in case my wife decides to check out my lumberjocks page before I get this baby built). My work includes windsor chairmaking so I wanted a Record style vise placed in the end vise postion. I have used this style vise in this location at Mike Dun...

Roubo #2: Dressing up those big legs

03-11-2009 03:46 AM by Jon3 | 0 comments »

Not much progress. LOML ok’d a grand on a jointer, so I sold my 6” delta and ordered a G0490X. So I finished dressing up the legs. A hair under 5”, but the ash finished nice and clean. Ends still rough, and weighing in around 33-34 inches each. Here they are on the old bench that the roubo is replacing.The old bench will take on duty as a stand for a 500lb milling machine and a small metal lathe (in the future).

Sandpaper Organizer

03-11-2009 02:06 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

One of the future follow on project from the Norms Miter Bench project was to build in a sand paper organizer into one of the drawers of the bench.In early February a fellow LJ KnotWright told me about a liquidation sale from the shutdown of a Dell production line. I bought a bunch of things but one of the jewels was a 2’x2’ bin for PC components on the assembly line. I looked at it, knew that it would fit in one of my drawers and immediately re-purposed it in my head. With all of...

Bogus Billing Alert

03-11-2009 01:02 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 11 comments »

Heads Up Everybody… Today I received what looked like a subscription renewal for WoodShop News (one of my favorite magazines.) I would classify it as a scam. I have a subscription with WoodShop News, they evidently know it and it is intended to trick me into sending them a check for a subscription renewal. If you try to pin them down you will notice that it is worded so that they are technically “a magazine clearinghouse agent.” The bill is a total poser that I am sure...

Shop done. Let's build something #5: more progress on the corner cabinet

03-10-2009 10:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

Today I managed to get the second door glued up, the top glued up, and the frame and doors prepped for finishing with scraper, sandpaper, and tack cloth. Both doors now done Scraping the cabinet frame. Notice the nice angle my newfangled bench can position the frame clamped in. I jointed and glued the two pieces that will make up the top. A cove molding made on the router table This will go against the cabinet under the top overhang.

When I bough my new home – an important feature was a huge white oak. 75’ dripline and about 176” circ at three feet above grade. Big ice storm Dec 21. Major damage. Remainder of tree must come down. No apparent rot. But told major danger in trying tp preserve. Bummer! Estimated at 325 to 400 years old. About 10 feet to first remaining branch. How could one best preserve some rounds or major planks that would allow the age to be appreciated?I’ve seen some ...
